• BLS Certification in Tennessee

    In Tennessee, BLS certification classes are taught by local professionals, and include only proven, vetted procedures. All of our programs are based on the latest science, standards and regulations, and are overseen by the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council – a panel of nationally recognized experts from scientific, medical, and academic disciplines. With the Council's guidance, we're able to ensure that our BLS trainings align with the latest evidence-based knowledge in science and medicine, and adhere to relevant industry guidelines.

    In our BLS classes in Tennessee you'll learn basic life support for healthcare providers – which means that you'll learn how to provide care to patients during times of crisis. Our courses cover scene safety and assessment, CPR/AED use for adults, children and infants, obstructed airways, critical thinking, problem solving, communication and teamwork, the EMS system, legal considerations, and precautions. Best of all, at the end of the class, you'll hold a number of certifications and be well prepared to provide basic emergency medical care.

    We know that everyone learns differently – which is why we offer BLS classes in Tennessee in both an in-person, and blended format. The in-person format delivers information in a traditional classroom setting and allows students to interact with each other, as well as the instructor. Meanwhile, the blended Simulation Learning format gives students the opportunity to enjoy online instruction – so they can attend class at their leisure, and spend time studying the information on their schedule. Both courses culminate in an in-person skills session, which allows students to show their skills to a certified instructor and receive full certification upon passing the skills exam.
